Indulge in Community Pride at the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby and Arts Festival

The Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby and Arts Festival is one of the city’s quirkiest spring events. The day-long celebration features a parade of human-powered, handmade floats and highlights the area’s creative spirit and community pride.

Cheer on design ingenuity during the derby and at its conclusion at the giant, messy Mudpit finishing zone and/or browse the booths from 100-plus local artists and vendors selling and displaying various arts and crafts.

Food trucks are onsite, too, serving up tacos, hoagies, ice cream and more. The free festival raises money for projects in the area while exposing people to an off-the-beaten-path neighborhood.

We know you love your home at U City Flats Apartments, the premier apartments in the University City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but it’s important to stay active and involved in your community. Attending this event is the perfect chance for you to journey outside your comfort zone to meet new people and seek new opportunities.
